This episode we’re going to focus on hardware based chiptune music, including gameboy songs made with the homebrew rom LSDj, Nintendo-style music made with NES compatible program Famitracker, and FM Synthesis like the Sega Genesis! Fans of old PC games will be pleased to know we’ve got an album created entirely on the Sound Blaster 16, a soundcard for home computers released back in 1992. That’s what we’re going to hear first, by chiptune legend and Oxygen Star who got his start performing live drums at PAX East in Boston.
Future Music from the Internet generation! Genres like Future Bass, Acid House, Lofi Hiphop, Future Bop, Deep House, Super Nintendo Trap, and I’m just making stuff up at this point. This one’s a biggie!
We get a blast from the past from some Chiptuners who were kickin’ it before I was even in the scene! New releases from Coda and Algar, plus we take a look back at the 2013 compilation from MicroCollective, and chiptune EDM by Bitonal Landscape.
New tracks from Desktop & Galaxy Swim Team, including RobKTA, Nelward and Sylcmyk. New releases from Joshua Morse, An0va (The Base Bit Recordings), Saitone (CheapBeats), and She.
